Favorite Summer Makeup

Hello everyone and welcome back to my blog! Today’s post is going to be talking about some of my favorite makeup that has held up through the summer. Summer makeup can be super hard to perfect, what with all the sweating, water, and hot weather. The makeup products below are some of the things I’ve found that have worked really well for me this summer. Check out my favorite summer products below!

IT Cosmetics Universal Brow Powder

I absolutely love using this brow pencil in the summer because powder doesn’t feel too harsh or cakey in the warm summer air. Not only does this feel nice as a brow product, but because it is in universal color, you can really tailor this product to your brow shade. Check out this product if you enjoy brow powder for your eyebrows and want something that will fit your shade no matter what.

ELF Clear Brow Gel

This product is also another eyebrow must have for summer weather. The clear brow gel is amazing because it locks your brows in place after you fill them in and keeps them still for the rest of the day. There is also a clear mascara side which is essentially the same exact product as the brow gel. This has worked really well for me even through sweating and being in the water. Definitely a must have!

Wet n Wild Illuminating Palette

This shimmer palette is really nice for the summer because it gives you a wonderful summer glow. There are four different shades of a highlighting shimmer that looks great on the skin. I like to use the fairest shade as a light highlighter and the middle two pinker shades as a illuminating blush. I haven’t really experimented with the darkest, gold shade since I’m super pale and it would show up too much on my skin tone. This product is great if you’re looking for something to help you achieve that summer glow!

ELF Eyeshadow Primer

One absolute must have during the summer is a good eye primer. My eyes are pretty dry and tend to flake during the usual day, let alone in the summer when everything just sweats off. This ELF primer is really good at keeping your eye products on throughout the day. If you need a good eye primer that’s also super affordable, check out this product!

Wet n Wild Graphic Marker Eyeliner

This is one of my favorite eyeliners at the moment. I love the marker style eyeliner because it is super easy to apply and doesn’t make a huge mess when you eventually mess up. I’ve also been using this regularly for a month and a half now and it still hasn’t dried out, which I’m super thrilled about. This is an affordable marker style eyeliner that is long lasting and is super easy to apply!

Carmex Lip Balm

I’ve been using this nearly every morning in my daily routine and my lips have felt so much better lately. I typically lean to the dry side with my skin, and my lips can get super chapped throughout the day. I love applying this in the morning and letting it work throughout the day to help moisturize my lips. The cherry scent is an extra bonus to this great summer staple!

Maybelline Lash Sensational

This mascara has been my go-to throughout the summer. Even though this product is not waterproof, I believe there is a waterproof version in the stores. I love this because it makes my lashes look fuller, which is the look I’m going for in the summer. I’m super minimalistic in the summer with my makeup, so mascara is the main go to product to make me look like I’m more put together. Check out this product for a better way to look put together with less products!

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Monte Carlo

There is nothing better than rocking a bold red lip during the summer months. I love rocking a stand out lip, and this is definitely the product for that! You can wear this as a regular liquid lipstick and rock a super red lip, or what I’ve been doing lately is putting a bit on my lips and blending it out to give it a softer look. The NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams are amazing and this color in particular is an amazing summer lip shade!


So there we have it, some of my favorite summer makeup products for the warmer months. What are your tried and true makeup products for the summer? Let me know in the products below! See you next time!
